If you are a new full-time undergraduate student from Scotland, you will need to apply for student finance through the Student Awards Agency Scotland. To do this you will need to:

  1. Register your details online
  2. Once you have done this, look out for two emails. One will confirm your account password, the second will confirm your account username and the answer you provided for the security question. It is important that you don’t forget these!
  3. You can then log in and commence your application for funding.

What You Will Need

The amount of bursary and student loan that you receive is based on your household income. This includes your own income excluding any income earned from employment. You will therefore need to provide evidence of this.
